We were thrilled to chat with director Jeff Orgill about his independent film, Boppin’ at the Glue Factory.


Boppin’ at the Glue Factory, directed by Jeff Orgill, is a satire which incorporates a variety of likeable characters spearheaded by the very talented Henry Dittman and Conrad Roberts. Ditman plays Eric Labudde, an addicted nurse who can get away with anything, and Roberts plays jazz man Tharin Sanders. Together they form an unlikely partnership all in the name of getting high.

This is lead actor Henry Dittman’s first leading role in a feature length motion picture. Conrad Roberts, as jazzman Tharin Sanders, has memorable roles in Mosquito Coast as Mr. Haddy and in Serpent and the Rainbow as Christophe. Mews Small’s, as Mary LeDoux, most recognizable role was as Candy, Jack Nicholson’s partying girlfriend in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest who deflowers Billy Bibbit.

The story is by Jeff Orgill and Hector Maldonado, with the screenplay by Jeff Orgill and B. Scott O’Malley (of Bleak Future fame). The film is being distributed by Indie Rights (Online) and Passion River Films (DVD).

Boppin At The Glue Factory

Desperate for a place to live and for his next fix, drug-addled nurse Eric LaBudde (Henry Dittman) lands a job in a ramshackle convalescent home, where he develops a mutually enabling relationship with jazz saxophone-playing resident Tharin Sanders (Conrad Roberts). As Eric charms his way into the home’s drug cabinet, he inadvertently brings some light to the retirees’ grim lives.


Boppin’ at The Glue Factory takes place in St. Joseph’s Convalescent Home – a grim geriatric care facility. The shooting location was in Norwalk, California at the Metropolitan State Hospital at a decommissioned building that had also been featured in Tim Burton’s Ed Wood.

Boppin at the Glue Factory

Boppin’ at The Glue Factory finished post-production in 2009 and after an award-winning festival run was released through, Passion River Films and Indie Rights for online distribution.

Boppin At The Glue Factory

When director Jeff Orgill discovered his video camera was missing and had been pawned by his junkie friend and roommate he was inspired to explore the relationship between addiction, friendship and co-dependency. Orgill fathomed issues about complicity, enabling behavior, trust and betrayal as he grappled with the personal horror of finding your best friend was not who he appeared to be. By transposing his personal predicament to the world of health care in an old age facility, Orgill was able to get some needed distance from this painful personal story, working in a more social and satirical commentary about a bleak American institution – the “old folks home” AKA “the glue factory.”

Boppin at the Glue Factory

Boppin’ at The Glue Factory is available on VOD and DVD.

Thoughts: Based on the witty, fast paced, and “super science-y” novel by Andy Weir, I am very excited to check out The Marian. I can’t wait to see how the science is presented in the movie. The novel was very well researched and goes into great detail with the scientific processes that are presented. The casting is fantastic. I’m especially looking forward to seeing Matt Damon as the wisecracking Watney. The script was penned by Drew Goddard (World War Z, The Cabin in the Woods), and directed by the legendary Ridley Scott.

The Bastard Executioner

I was scanning through the television listings and a name caught my eye. Kurt Sutter. The genius mind behind Sons of Anarchy returns to television with The Bastard Executioner for FX. The new series premieres tonight and is set in the middle ages, promising a bloody and intriguing hour every week. If it has half the brutality that Sons had, I think fans of Game of Thornes (such as myself) might enjoy the new show. Joining Sutter from Anarchy are Katey Sagal and Timothy V Murphy, and I’m sure that we’ll see many other regulars of his. Also in the new series are Lee Jones, True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer, and Flora Spencer-Longhurst.

Official Show Description: The Bastard Executioner is a blood-soaked, medieval epic that tells the story of Wilkin Brattle, a 14th century warrior, whose life is forever changed when a divine messenger beseeches him to lay down his sword and lead the life of another man: a journeyman executioner. Set in northern Wales during a time rife with rebellion and political upheaval, Wilkin must walk a tight rope between protecting his true identity while also serving a mysterious destiny.

Guided by Annora, a mystical healer whose seeming omniscience keeps Wilkin under her sway; manipulated by Milus Corbett, a devious Chamberlain with grand political aspirations; and driven by a deepening connection with the Baroness Lady Love, Wilkin struggles to navigate political, emotional and supernal pitfalls in his quest to understand his greater purpose.

The Bastard Executioner premieres tonight at 10pm on FX.

A lot of interesting news in comics lately, here are a few tidbits.


This surprised me, but is actually (maybe) a fantastic idea. Mary Jane Watson, Spiderman’s long time love and (sorta) ex-wife is joining the supporting cast of Invincible Iron Man with issue 4. Will this be a long time addition or is it more of a stunt? How will this affect Mary Jane’s role in Spiderman?

Although, with MJ being sidelined the last few years in Spiderman, this is actually a great idea for keeping her in a larger role in the Marvel universe (of course I’d totally be down for an MJ ongoing in the current Marvel Comics universe). Will she be working for Stark, friends, or a potential love interest (I could do without the latter)? The issue hits stands in December and we will discovery the direction they take with MJ. Ironically, if MJ and Tony become love interests, it was Tony’s actions that ultimately led to the end of Spiderman/MJ marriage and the rewriting of the Marvel Universe’s history (long story, see: “Civil War“.)


December will not be nearly as friendly to DC Comic titles as five ongoing will be coming to an end by the end of the month. According to Comic Book Resources, these titles include Lobo (pictured left), Doomed, The Omega Men, Gotham By Midnight, and Justice League United.

Doomed is expected to conclude with issue #6 in November, with the rest meeting their end in December. Neither Doomed nor The Omega Men even reached 10 issues, such a short amount of time to find its footing and an audience. Years ago, these ongoings would have had a much better shot. Could these characters be retooled (or in Lobo’s case, maybe bringing him back to his pre-New 52 style and roots)? There is still a lot of potential for these characters and I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of them.

Joss Whedon's New Comic Series

I’m not sure how I missed this announcement, but Joss Whedon will be writing a new comic series for Dark Horse Comics, The Twist. Of course Dark Horse is the home of Buffy, Angel, and Serenity comics.

Whedon described the series to EW, stating “It’s a Victorian thriller about a meek chambermaid who is fed to a dark horror — but instead of dying, she returns, with knowledge, power, and rage she can neither deny nor control.” The character will launch in a 6 issue mini series, with unlimited potential for future material. Buffy meets steampunk? I’m totally down for that.

Z Nation - New Season

Z Nation, the action-horror series on the Syfy channel returns tonight with its all new season. The post-apocalyptic show focuses on humanity’s ongoing struggle against zombies infused with all of the action and camp that you’d expect from a Syfy series. The show is the polar opposite from The Walking Dead, and that is not a bad thing. There is plenty of room for all sorts of zombie shows. The new episode is on at 10pm.

Z Nation, “The Murphy”
Description: In the Season 2 premiere, moments have passed since Murphy triggered the launch of tactical nuclear weapons and it’s every man/woman for themselves as the group split up and try to outrun the impending blast. Meanwhile, Citizen Z finds himself battling thawed zombies and unable to communicate with the team, which leads him to make a desperate move that prompts the arrival of a mysterious and deadly bounty hunter.

Marvel's Agents of Shield

If you aren’t watching Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, then you really should be! Since last year’s (spoiler alert) fall of SHIELD in Captain America: Winter Soldier, the show has been firing on all cylinders both creatively- and literally (the story movement has been nonstop). The team’s recent addition of Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki) has been fantastic as has the mystery of Director Coulson’s alien writings. Is it Kree? Could it tie into the Inhumans? Are we seeing seeds planted for Age of Ultron or Captain America: Civil War? As many great questions that you can ask, here is hoping some of them pan out!

Tonight’s all new episode airs at 9pm on ABC. Here is the official description from ABC:

Marvel’s Agents of Shield, “The Writing on the Wall”
The team discovers murder victims who have on their bodies the same alien glyphs on them that Coulson’s been etching, and all of Coulson’s secrets and lies come to a head.
